Bhoomi – Sanjay Dutt Is Back With A Bang
With films like Sarbjit and Mary Kom, Omung Kumar has already proved how well he can present a film. With actors like Sanjay Dutt – the powerhouse of acting and blessed with a huge persona along with performance oriented Aditi Rao Hydari, Omung Kumar can do wonders on celluloid. Bhoomi is released and features Sanjay Dutt in a full fledge role after almost 4 years, as his characters in PK, Ungli and Zanjeer could not be considered as main leads. It is time to find out what Bhoomi has to offer to its viewers and whether the fans of Sanju Baba will be happy with it or not.
Bhoomi revolves around a father-daughter relationship. Sanjay Dutt plays the father of Aditi Rao Hydari; just before a day before Bhoomi’s wedding, she got abducted by her admirer and his two accomplices. Bhoomi gets raped and she on her wedding night shares the incident with her groom to be, just like what happens in most situations, grooms’ family walks away from the wedding leaving Bhoomi and her father helpless. Arun tries registers a complaint against the trio but in the courtroom the culprits walk away with clean chit. What happens next is what Bhoomi is all about. Bhoomi is about a family trying to live their life quietly after facing the injustice from the society as well as the court of law. Bhoomi is also about vengeance. Bhoomi is a nicely made film loaded with some great dialogues and performances.
Sanjay Dutt is remembered for his Munna Bhai character but he has also portrayed some amazing serious roles which include the character of Pitaah and Tathastu; in Bhoomi audience might find a few traces of his characters from both these mentioned films but this performance is way ahead of those. Dutt shows two sides of a father, one who is helpless and the other who is mighty enough to not only safeguard his daughter but also make her stronger. Bhoomi is one of the finest performances by Sanjay Dutt hands down.
Aditi Rao Hydari is simply brilliant, her dramatic scenes are clap worthy and viewers connect with her readily. The way Aditi stammers and delivers her dialogues is commendable. Hats of the way her character is penned. Sharad Kelkar is impressive and easily faces the mature-macho of Bollywood with complete comfort. After a long time, Bollywood has a villain who can create terror with his eyes only. Rest of the actors performs their roles quite well and with complete dedication.
Direction is first rate and climax is intensely shot which takes the film to the next level. Although a little too-filmy essence is there but that’s what Bollywood is all about. Music is okay, Jugni and Trippy Trippy are easy to hum along.
